Presenter Keith Fordyce left the show at the end of March. From 2nd April Kathy McGowen would host it on her own and artists would now be required to perform live rather than mime.

Gadzooks! It's All Happening
This series was BBC2's immediate successor to "The Beat Room" which had come to an end the previous week. The new show was compered by singers Alan David and Christine Holmes with resident dance troupe The Beat Girls. The title was changed to "Gadzooks! It’s the In Crowd" at one point and eventually shortened to just "Gadzooks!". David Bowie (then known as Davy Jones) was reported to have initially been banned from appearing on Show 6 because of the length of his hair, the producer Barry Langford told the press "Kids today don't want this long-hair business. For his own sake, Davy should have his hair cut.", but Jones was given a reprieve and told that he could appear - so long as he agreed to give his appearance fee to charity if there were complaints from viewers. Presenter Alan David left the programme on 5th July 1965 because "Not enough people are looking in." (the relatively new channel BBC2 was only available in certain areas and to those with specially adapted TV sets at the time), a BBC spokesman responded "The programme is being re-shaped" and it appears that Roger Whittaker then took over until it was axed after 8 consecutive months on air. Nothing from the series is known to have survived.

NME Poll Winners Concert (1965)
Beatles - NME Poll Winners Concert 1965Kinks - NME Poll Winners Concert 1965Alan Price - NME Poll Winners Concert 1965
The NME Poll Winners Concert was an annual awards event from 1963-1972 organised by the weekly pop newspaper New Musical Express and held at the Empire Pool in Wembley. The 1965 show, which took place on Sunday 11th April in front of 10,000 fans, was particularly memorable as it featured The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Them, The Kinks and The Animals and, unlike the 1966 concert, the ABC cameras were allowed to record both The Beatles and The Rolling Stones sets for inclusion in the TV broadcasts - shown in two parts over consecutive Sundays. Note that Alan Price left The Animals a matter of days/weeks after this performance with the announcement of his departure being made public on 5th May 1965.

Beatles - "I Feel Fine", "She's a Woman", "Baby's in Black", "Ticket to Ride" & "Long Tall Sally"
Rolling Stones - "Everybody Needs Somebody to Love", "Pain in My Heart", "Around and Around" & "The Last Time"
Them - "Here Comes the Night" & "Turn On Your Love Light"
Kinks - "Tired of Waiting" & "You Really Got Me"
Animals - "Boom Boom", "Talking 'Bout You" & "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood"

Part One - ABC (ITV Midlands & North)* Sunday 18th April 1965, 3:15-4:40pm (black & white)
Part Two - ABC (ITV Midlands & North)* Sunday 25th April 1965, 3:15-4:40pm (black & white)

*Anglia and Westward also showed the programmes at the same time as ABC whilst ATV London and Southern showed them at the later time of 4:10-5:35pm. Scottish showed Part One on 25th April (from 3:40pm) and Part Two on 2nd May (from 3:25pm).
 

Top of the Pops (1965 editions)
Top of the Pops - Jimmy Saville 1965Top of the Pops - The ByrdsTop of the Pops - The Rolling Stones 1965
Incredibly, none of the Beatles' exclusive recordings made for TOTP during 1964 and 1965 exist except for 20 seconds or so of "Ticket to Ride" which was re-used on an episode of "Dr Who" (the cast watching the performance on a "time and space visualiser"). The biggest loss Beatle-wise is "Yes it is" as there is no visual record of that song being performed anywhere.

Dont Look Back
Don't Look Back
The film of Bob Dylan's Spring 1965 UK tour documented by D. A. Pennebaker includes footage of Bob sparring with reporters, meeting fans, relaxing in the hotel rooms with Joan Baez, Donovan, Alan Price etc. as well as performing several songs at the Royal Albert Hall. The most often seen sequence is the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" opening section in which Dylan displays a series of cue cards emphasising words and phrases in the song.

Reporter: Would you say that you cared about people particularly?
Dylan: Well yeah, but you know, we all have our own definitions of all those words, "Care" and "People".
Reporter: Surely we know what people are.
Dylan: Well, er, do we?

Wholly Communion
Wholly CommunionAdrian Mitchell - Wholly CommunionAllen Ginsberg - Wholly Communion
"The International Poetry Incarnation" at the Albert Hall, London on 11th June 1965 had very little to do with music, but it was the event that really set the counter-culture ball rolling in Britain with some notable scenes of 'freaking out'. Peter Whitehead decided only hours beforehand to film it, borrowing £100 to hire equipment and shooting it all on one camera, the images were later synched up to a superior BBC audio recording and the result was this 33 minute production. The star attraction was Allen Ginsberg, although the most celebrated segment was Adrian Mitchell's savage ironies on Vietnam: "I was run over by the truth one day, ever since the accident I've walked this way, so stick my legs in plaster - tell me lies about Vietnam....". The film has never been shown on any of the main TV stations in the UK although clips have turned up on numerous '60's retrospectives.

Help!
1965 The Beatles - Help!
The Beatles 2nd movie, again directed by Richard Lester, though this time filmed in colour. Written by Charles Wood and Marc Behm, the plot revolves around Ringo (who had shown himself to be the most capable actor among the four band members in their original picture), the drummer having been sent a ring by a 'fan' which belonged to an eastern cult - Members of which then arrive in London in a desperate bid to retrieve it. The British television premiere in the summer of 1971 was the first of a weekly series of Rock 'N' Roll films broadcast on BBC1 under the "Pop Go The Movies" banner, the "Help!" album re-entered the UK charts soon afterwards for a two week appearance where it peaked at #33. A late change to the schedules on the night of 9th December 1980 saw the film shown as a tribute to John Lennon, though it was arguably the least appropriate of the Beatles Movies given that Lennon had never disguised his disappointment with it.

Songs in the film
"Help!" (Mock TV performance)
"You're Going to Lose That Girl" (Mock studio recording)
"You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" (On the couch with Eleanor Bron)
"Ticket to Ride" (In the Swiss alps attempting to ski)
"I Need You" (Surrounded by army protection on Salisbury plain)
"The Night Before" (as above)
"Another Girl" (By the sea in the Bahamas)

Charlie is My Darling
Charlie is My Darling - Mick JaggerCharlie is My Darling - Keith RichardsCharlie is My Darling - Brian Jones
Film of the Rolling Stones short tour of Ireland, 3rd-4th September 1965*, directed by Peter Whitehead. The film mostly captures the band off stage, notable for an interesting interview with Brian Jones and a drunken hotel scene in which Keith plays piano and Mick impersonates Elvis and recreates the opening of The Beatles "I Feel Fine".

*The band played two shows in Dublin on 03/09/1965 and two in Belfast on 04/09/1965.

Brian Jones: "The future as a Rolling Stone is very uncertain. My ultimate aim in life was never to be a pop star. I enjoy it, with reservations, but I'm not really, sort of, satisfied - either artistically or personally."

Film given limited release March 1966 (50 minutes, black & white)
